Pet Sitting Visits (All Critter Care)
As pet lovers, we know our pets are most happy in their own home. Your pet will stay at home and enjoy its familiar surroundings, exercise, routines, feeding and playtime with lots of love and attention. Your pet won’t be stressed and upset, and you won’t be inconvenienced by the need for transportation to a kennel or boarding facility with unfamiliar surroundings.
We care for dogs, cats, reptiles [according to Animal Control and Licencing Bylaw No. 6908-2012], amphibians, rodents, birds, fish, hobby farm and exotic animals and horses.
Free initial consultation – 30-45 minute drop in visit (collect key, meet pet(s), fill out pet and client forms (available for download on our website), and provide references and credentials)
Standard 30-minute Pet-Sit Visit – $22.50 (for 3 pets and under). Provide food and fresh water in clean bowls, poop-scoop litter boxes, playing –exercising, basic grooming (brushing), medicating (oral and topical), water indoor plants, adjust lighting, collect mail, and place garbage and recycle out on scheduled days.
During this visit, fees are based on the number and type of pets and the number of visits per day. We also offer customized visits involving difficult or time-consuming services (e.g. changing and cleaning hummingbird feeders) for an additional fee of $5.00 for every extra 15-minutes, up to an extra 30-minutes.
Key will be collected during the consultation visit. Keys are NOT coded with identifiers linked to property addresses and are kept in a locked key box.
When keys are provided at the initial visit and kept on file there are no future charges. Otherwise fees are:
Key Pick up or Drop off – $10.00 fee
Mail Key – $5.00
